In general, avoidance of the following can help impede eczema symptoms:
-Cold or dry environments
-Emotional stress or anxiety
-Rapid temperature changes
-Exposure to certain chemicals or irritants including soaps and detergents, perfumes and cosmetics, wool or synthetic fibers, dust, sand, and cigarette smoke
While there are treatments that can relieve the symptoms of eczema, there is, however, no cure. Most children with eczema do grow out of it by the time they become adults. The treatments for eczema include:
-Moisturizing creams or ointments. These products help keep your skin moisturized. It is recommended to put it on right after a bath or shower.
-Steroid creams and ointments. These can help with itching and swelling. In some cases, steroid pills can be prescribed
-Antihistamine pills. Some people with eczema find that antihistamines relieve itching.
